We work with nature to help our natural environment to support life in the future
We can’t ignore it – climate change, pollution and energy crises will affect not only our children’s and grandchildren’s lives, but our lives. Man’s impact on our planet is already starting to have effects on our lives and all the other species we live along side.
Wetlands supply life-giving water and a whole range of other benefits, like flood management, food and health. They can even help to reduce pollution and regulate the air temperature. As the world wakes up to the benefits wetlands can bring, governments and business are looking for advice and expertise to help them build wetlands that will benefit people and even save money.
These solutions often involve commercial work outside the remit of a charity. In 1989 WWT Consulting was established as a subsidiary of the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust to take on these challenges, with all profits going back into WWT’s conservation work.
At WWT Consulting we advise governments, business, NGOs, and private landowners on building wetland solutions to problems like pollution and flooding that make the world a better place for people and wildlife. If you’re going to build a wetland, we can help you make it somewhere fantastic that will become a valued part of people’s communities!
We also provide commercial services for many of the other areas of expertise held by WWT such as visitor center planning, design and management. Our full range of service are detailed further here:
- Ecological surveys and assessment
- Habitat design and management
- Visitor center planning and design
- Wetland treatment systems and SuDS
WWT is taking action to make wetlands around the world places for people and wildlife. This is fundamental to successful in situ conservation of protected species and wetland sites, as it is vital for local people who also call those wetlands home to appreciate their natural value. This allows the development of sustainable livelihood approaches to wetland management, whilst maintaining biodiversity and thus providing resources for future generations of people and wildlife.
